"Are you a master in creative problem solving, a yet unrecognized livewire of inventive ideas? We started this student design competition because we wanted to make our premium industry research accessible to students to see what sparks fly from their minds."
As a response to many inquiring student minds, Inventables has launched their first ever student competition! After registering for the competition, students are granted access to a handful of technologies and materials. Register, and put your imagination to work.
Check out the inventables site for more information.
